Description

Division of the land of John Leverett's Estate in 1725. Leverett was the president of Harvard from 1708-1724, and the grandson of John Leverett, Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. The properties are on Leverett Street. They were transferred to his daughters S. (Sarah) Leverett and Mary (Leverett) Dennison and his nephew Knight Leverett.
